Now you have a chance to buy what must be one of the more famous U-Haul trucks in history. Artist Clark Stoeckly has put his spoof "Wikileaks Mobile Collection Unit" on eBay to raise funds.

Created as a mobile art project, the truck ended up serving Occupy Wall Street well in the role of designated hauler and truck-of-all-trades.

Bailing it out of impound after the cops confiscated it became an accidental performance art piece. The NYPD claimed at first that they couldn’t find the vehicle, and the snafu went viral.

Eventually the truck turned up, and now it's on eBay.

The listing reads in part:

Clark's New Year's Resolution is to expand the WikiLeaks Truck project and make a fleet around the world.
To afford to do so, he must sell the original truck.
This is not the end of this conceptual art piece, rather it is merely just the beginning.
Clark bought this box truck from U-Haul exactly one year ago. On March 19th, he transformed the truck into the WikiLeaks Mobile Information Collection Unit.

Extras

Satellite Dish
4 Dummy Security Cameras
Patriotic Bunting
Couch
Toy Piano
and possibly tracking bugs installed by the government

Minimum bid is $7,500 and only 6 more days left to bid!
